HISTORY. 

The Institution was founded more than twenty years ago 
by the Chowan and Portsmouth Associations, for the purpose 
of furnishing to the Baptists and their friends, a first class 
school, possessing all the necessary facilities for imparting a 
thorough and liberal education. They accordingly erected a 
large and beautiful building, and furnished it with an ele- 
gance and a liberality, which enabled it at once to take rank 
with the best female schools of the country. This rank it 
still maintains. 

A debt contracted in the original founding of the Institu- 
tion, unliquidated at the close of the late war, for a time im- 
periled its safety and impaired its prosperity, but a few 
brethren, at the instance of the Board of Trustees, generously 
paid the debt and assumed the temporary control of the Insti- 
tution, with the pledge, on their part, that they will restore 
it to the denomination whenever the money advanced by them 
shall be refunded. In the meantime the school is conducted 
on the same principles and mainly by the same men as former- 
ly. It is now in a very prosperous condition, and being free 
from all encumbrance, its continued prosperity may be rea- 
sonably anticipated. 

LOCATION. 

The location is eminently appropriate, embracing a tract of 
twenty-eight acres adjacent to the town, it secures the impor- 
tant advantages of privacy and affords ample moans of exer- 
cise and recreation within its own iuclosurc. 



18 



CHOWAN BAPTIST FEMALE INSTITUTE. 



A fine lawn of six acres, immediately in front of the colle- 
giate edifice, laid out in walks and ornamented with shrubbery 
and flowers, adds greatly to the attractiveness of the place, 
and affords, at the same time, inducements to out-door exer- 
cise and means for botanical pursuits. 

HEALTH. 

This location was selected over several others in some re- 
spects more eligible, on account of its celebrity for health ; 
and the history of the two schools (for the Methodists have 
here a large and excellent Institution) fully sustains the pre- 
vious reputation of the place. Both schools have had, for 
many years, a large and widely extended patronage, and the 
experience of both concurs in establishing the fact, that pupils 
from the hill-couutry, coming here in October and leaving in 
July, are little, if at all, liable to chills, the only form of dis- 
ease that can be considered peculiar to this climate, while 
those from nearer the sea-coast are generally improved in 
health by a residence here. 

The water on the Institute premises is equal in purity and 
coolness to the best water of the hill-country, being obtained 
from a well forty-five feet deep, — uniform temperature 55°. 

GOVERNMENT. 

The govennent is mild and parental. It is regarded as of 
primary importance that pupils be induced to act from princi- 
ple rather than from fear of punishment ; hence every effort is 
made to reclaim the erring by kindness and by appeals to the 
reason and the conscience ; if these fail the student is privately 
withdrawn from the Institution. No young lady will be 
allowed to remain long in the school, whose example tends to 
encourage idleness or insubordination. 



®§ggl@5*- 



it'OTsswRS** " 



CHOWAN BAPTIST FEMALE INSTITUTE. 




Incentives to diligence are furnished from the moral rela- 
tions of the individual, and the obligations growing out of 
them, rather than by appeals to ambition and the hope of re- 
ward. The object is to make the student feel her responsibil- 
ity as a social and rational being, endowed with the power of 
doing both good and evil, and that it is obligatory upon her 
to strengthen her faculties, as a means of usefulness to others 
and of happiness to herself. 

Pupils from abroad are not permitted to make visits or to 
receive them, except from relations, or friends from their own 
neighborhoods. Boarding pupils never leave the Institute 
promises except when attended by an officer of the Institution 
or a near relative. 

No young lady is permitted to open an account with a 
merchant, without permission from her parent or guardian. 

Costly dressing is discouraged, and the wearing of useless 
jewelry strictly prohibited. 

Every pupil on application for admission is examined on her 
previous acquirements, and is placed in such studies as the 
Board of Instruction deems best for her, due recard beinsr 
had to the special wishes of her parent. Ornamental studies 
are selected by the parent alone. 

When a young lady has been placed in a certain routine of 
study, she is not permitted to change her studies except for 
good and sufficient reasons. 

It is very important that pupils should be entered at the 
beginning of the session, and no deduction from charges is 
made for the loss of the first two weeks. Those who enter 
at any time during the session and join the same classes 
with which they were previously connected, are charged 
tuition for the whole session. An absence of a few weeks fre- 
quently renders it impossible for a young lady to regain her 
position in her classes. 



ases**- 




-»£8§S3S® 



CHOWAN BAPTIST FEMALE INSTITUTE. 



New pupils are received at any time, and, after the first 
two weeks, charged only from the time of entering. 

Classes are formed and new studies commenced at the be- 
ginning of the Fall Session, hence pupils entering at that 
time have greatly the advantage of those entering at a later 
period. 

SESSIONS AND VACATION. 

The scholastic year is divided into two sessions, thus : — 

Fall Session begins 1st Wednesday in October and ends 
14th day of February following. Spring Session begins the 
15th day of February and ends with the Annual Commence- 
ment, 1st Wednesday in July. 

The Vacation extends from the 1st Wednesday in July to the 
1st Wednesday in October. This arrangement was adopted 
after due deliberation, and experience has proved it eminently 
judicious. The length of this vacation renders all others un- 
necessary, and hence only one day's suspension of business will 
take place at Christmas. 

LECTURES. 

Weekly Lectures are delivered on literary and scientific 
subjects either by members of the Faculty or by distinguished 
gentlemen invited for that purpose. 

APPARATUS. 

The Institution is furnished with a very complete and su- 
perior set of Philosophical, Chemical, and Astronomical Ap- 
paratus for the practical illustration of the principles of those 
sciences. 

LIBRARY, READING-ROOM AND CABINET. 

The Institute is furnished with a small, select Library, a 
Cabinet of Natural and Artificial Curiosities, and a Reading- 
Room supplied with a suitable periodical literature. 



CHOWAN BAPTIST FEMALE INSTITUTE. 




RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION. 

Considering religion as constituting the foundation of 
character and happiness, the founders of the Institution in- 
corporated into its system of instruction and discipline, the 
christian religion in its essential features, as held and taught 
by evangelical denominations. 

Religious services are held morning and evening, at which 
all the pupils are required to be present. They are also re- 
quired to attend public worship and Sabbath school on Sun- 
day, in the forenoon, when the weather permits, at the village 
church, and in the evening at the Institute chapel. 

DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC. 

Music, both instrumental and vocal, is taught by the best 
teachers that can be procured. For the last two years and a 
half the department has been under the direction of Mrs. S. 
J. Myrick, a refined and cultivated lady, who has taken un- 
usual pains, under the tuition of the best masters, to qualify 
herself for teaching ; and having taught over a dozen years in 
the Institution, she is well known to its patrons as the most 
popular and successful teacher ever connected with the school. 
Under her direction and tuition, the department has acquired 
unusual efficiency. Her associates are ladies also of expe- 
rience and superior qualifications. 

DEPARTMENT OF FINE ARTS. 

This department is under the direction of a lady of long 
experience and unrivalled ability. It is justly popular, and 
presents superior advantages to those who wish to cultivate 
their taste for the Fine Arts. 





CHOWAN BAPTIST FEMALE INSTITUTE. 




STEWARD'S DEPARTMENT. 

This department heretofore rented to a steward, who fur- 
nished it and received the profits of it, will henceforth be re- 
tained by the Trustees. A competent man will be placed in 
charge of it, and like all the other departments, it will be 
under the general supervision of the President, whose long 
experience warrants the assurance that it will be administered 
in a satisfactory manner. 






SCHEME OF STUDIES NECESSARY TO OBTAIN A DIPLOMA, 



ACADEMIC DEPARTMENT. 

This department comprises — 

The Elements of the English Language : Spelling, Head- 
ing, Penmanship. 
Arithmetic. 
Grammar. 
Geography.

Composition and Letter Writing. 

jCJTThis department will require two years to complete it ; 
but it is expected, of course, that most pupils will be sufficient- 
ly advanced when they enter to save part of this time. The 
classes are so arranged that pupils in this department share 
the instruction of all the teachers.

While the foregoing scheme of studies may not embrace all 
that is desirable, a long experience has proved that it em-

tion is furnished with unusual educational facilities 

None but experienced teachers are employed, and those 
who have proved their competency by success in teaching. 

The I resident and several of the Teachers reside in the

The President himself presides in the room occupied for 
study by the advanced classes ; he keeps before him a schedule

usually affect the punctuality of those residing in private 
families. r 

The location is happily adapted to secure exemption from

or pupils. n

Those living near any of our railroads will find it most 
convenient to come in the cars to Boykin's Depot, on the 
Seaboard and Roanoke Railroad, about twelve miles from the 
Institute. From that point to Murfreosboro' there is a daily 
line of hacks.
